Russian literary prodigy holds exchange in HCM City

The talent has been famous after his first book “A Rainbow for a Friend” was published when he was only 13 years old. The book has since been translated into many languages throughout the world, including Vietnamese.

(VOV) – Young Russian literary prodigy Mikhail Samarsky on January 2 held an exchange with Vietnamese audiences in HCM City and presented audio books to the blind under the program “Seeds of the Soul” launched by First News Company.

During the exchange, audiences gave thunderous applause to the prodigy who is admired for his friendliness and kind heart.


On the occasion, the talent gave six Braille-display computers that he paid for with his own money to visually-impaired students from Nguyen Dinh Chieu Blind School.

Le Thi Nhung, a visually-impaired student in HCM City, said she was lucky to learn about “A Rainbow for a Friend” through audio books.

The organizing board also granted 24 scholarships and insignias to 10 visually-impaired outstanding examples who overcome their difficult circumstances and excel in their studies.

The “Seeds of the Soul” program also signed a memorandum of understanding with Russia’s Living Hearts Fund to strengthen cultural activities. The organization “Seeds of the Soul-Living Hearts” plans to open an office in both HCM City and Moscow in the future.
